    Re: Mandolin Orange on today Show

    I think of Mandolin Orange's songs as who they are as songwriters and appreciate the depth of their lyrics. True, their musicianship is exceptional, as is the production quality whether live or in...

    Re: Who has thin bluechips?

    I added a Blue Chip SR 60 this week with the round bevel. I also own a CT 55. They are worth the price!

    Re: Andrew Marlin's Pick

    Meanwhile, I bought a Blue Chip SR 60, as I have a CT 55 and enjoy that one. I got the round bevel this time to avoid any hang ups on strings when playing tremolo. Good release so far. Haven't...

    Re: favourite strings

    Hi Mandobart! I am glad you shared about the DR Rare strings on your F5. I have not tried those though I have tried the DR Pure Blues on my Strat once or twice. Liked those! I will have to try...

    Re: Andrew Marlin's Pick

    At 33:13, as you indicated, that pick does look fairly small. Going up the neck is definitely a technique he uses, also. Interesting! Thanks for the vids.

    Re: Andrew Marlin's Pick

    onassis, Very interesting thoughts! Thanks for the reply. I agree that the large triangle makes a lot of sense. My best sound and fluid play experiences may have come from my Blue Chip CT55 though...

    Re: Andrew Marlin's Pick

    Thanks Kevin. Admittedly, it is hard to tell from a video. The one time we saw him in July we had a great seat in the front, but on the side. I couldn't tell from that angle. Anyway, just really...

    Re: Who has thin bluechips?

    yankees1: I would like to ask for the sake of my own consideration: Do you get the speed bevel or the round? I was thinking the rounded may be more usable on all corners, as needed?

    Re: favourite strings

    IMHO, Phosphor bronze strings are not "a young whipper snapper thing"-- unless you count 64 years old in that category. :)) I first began to use PB strings when they were found on new USA-built Guild...

    Re: Pain in Fretting Hand?

    I agree with Usuallypickin'. I get a more relaxed left hand by increasing the angle of the neck toward the left shoulder, as opposed to level to the ground. This is on a continuum and varies from...

    I like to watch players and their technique, as most of us do. Mandolin Orange is a favorite and currently in our queue... if that is the word for "ready to hear next". :) Well, as I watch Andrew...
